Spaying and neutering rabbits

Like dogs and cats, rabbits can be spayed and neutered as well. We recommend that rabbits are spayed and neutered between 4-6 months of age. There are many benefits of sterilizing rabbits. Firstly it contributes to population control. Secondly it reduces aggression towards other animals as well as owners and territoriality in both males and females. Thirdly neutering can reduce urine spraying. Lastly sterilization reduces the risk of uterine and mammary cancer in females.

After surgery male rabbits must be kept separated from females for at least 2 months as semen can live long periods of time and females can still become pregnant even if the male has been neutered.
